    Moral Support please

    I'm soon to be a proud Snob & Poseur! My new flux frame, and second turner, has arrived and is waiting for me at the FedEx customs office. The buggers only open Sunday morning so I have to wait for 36 hours!! ARHHHH the wait is bugging me out

    Patience is a virtue, how's that?

    Where do you live? Kinda crazy it's only open on Sundays, I've been waiting impatiently for a few weeks now for my 2nd Turner, few more to go

    "My second Turner" - now doesn't that just have a beautiful ring to it? Anyone who owns less than two is just a poseur snob poseur - welcome to First Class.

    An RFX , I was in the market for a beefy 6" frame to replace my Foes and was very interested in the new FXR design but there is very little to no info out there as far as ride reviews, and they changed the suspension design and the geometry. I couldn't find anyone in my area to do a test ride either, plus the wait is around 2 months at this point cause Foes is behind on production. 3 strikes their out.

    The RFX is proven, will hold up to my fat arse and I can feel comfortable about riding it like I want to, I guess I was a little hesitant about pushing the FXR too much, it did start bottoming also in the last few months but I think the shock needed service, Foes makes some nice bikes and I really enjoyed the FXR but it's time for something different. Here's a shot icegeek took a few weeks ago in Moab, the FXR didn't like this drop and bottomed pretty good, bent the shock bolt and the linkage rubbed all the way down. I think SSinga and FXRob owe me a "told you so"

    RR: wmbarace (a riding bud of mine) also has an FXR, and a Spot that replaced his 02, and he just took his RFX on it's maiden dirt voyage the other day. (I brought my blingPaq) I think there may be some kind of "can't have just one" syndrome going on here.

    Good luck man... BTW Green ROCKS! and I don't even like green

    Thanks zilla, mine will be more of a "simple green" compared to your rig though I need to look at some different stickers for my Z1 fork, the stock stickers came off with the protective covering, an outlined bomber logo would be cool to match the outlined Turner logo on the frame, not sure if Zoke has any or not.

    Hey PSI- sorry to hijack, it's Sun morning though so your probably picking up your frame, post some pics when you get back!

    no pics of the frame cos i ended up getting her and building her up all in one day. what a day! fedex, customs, 4 different lbs's... finished her off around 7 pm. boy is my wife pissed
    its a basic build, mostly of parts i had laying around. ill start replacing parts once i figure out want i want her to be, a little spot or a big nitrous.
